Campus Transformation Plan

Projecte de transformació del Campus a Vall d'Hebron

The Campus Transformation Plan aims to govern the future growth and development of the hospital and the whole of the Vall d’Hebron Barcelona Hospital Campus. It establishes the guidelines for the hospital’s evolution towards an environmentally sustainable healthcare model integrating care, training, research and innovation.

Descripció del projecte

The future campus of Catalonia’s largest health centre will have more green spaces and will be open to the city. This is the proposal put forward by the BAAS and Espinet-Ubach studies project, winners of the architectural tender for the urban transformation of the Vall d'Hebron Campus.

One of the most important novelties of the architectural proposal is the entrance, with a new reception and a large civic square, as well as new vertical access via escalators. The project also includes a new building for the Vall d'Hebron Research Institute, a new building for external consultations and outpatients, and the comprehensive renovation of the hospital buildings and their surroundings. The first stage of this remodelling would be to build the first phase of the Vall d'Hebron Research Institute (VHIR), which has received more than €15 million of funding from ERDF (European Regional Development Fund). In parallel, the construction of the new building for external consultations would begin, with an investment of €60 million.

The main goals of this urban plan from a care point of view are to:

  • Improve the separation of patient and professional routes
  • Separate outpatients from inpatients
  • Improve patient welcome and reception
  • Create more meeting areas for professionals
  • Adapt emergency spaces to patients

The Vall d’Hebron Campus Transformation Plan will change the layout of the environment, including, among others: recovering welcome and rest areas for patients, professionals and visitors; opening the campus up to the city; improving accessibility and mobility on-site and decongestion of Campus surroundings.
